Example text

Both Classic Airframes and Special Hobby released this 1/48-scale Spitfire Mk Vc with minor variations in 2008. In 2009, Eduard also released their own boxing of the same plastic sprues with their own colour photo-etched parts. Limited-run kit parts are usually not labelled on the sprues, and generally require more time and effort to clean up the plastic. I find it helpful to remove and prepare all the parts before commencing construction. Here, the parts have been stored in resealable bags prior to assembly.

These differences are more extensive than it might seem at first glance. On the Vc, the access panels for the guns changed, the position of the upper-wing blister moved forward, the blisters themselves altered shape (in fact, there were several shapes depending on the armament fitted to the new universal wing), the shape of the cannon fairings changed and more. Australians have a particular interest in the Spitfire Vc because the early Spitfire squadrons in the Pacific and at home were all equipped with this mark.

In particular, the instructions talk about the need to fill a small gap in the sidewall of the wheel well when the outer wing is removed. PAINTING Unlike many post-war British and Commonwealth aircraft, this Spitfire was not painted silver. It was stripped back to bare metal. A bare metal finish has a unique appearance, quite different from painted silver. The reflectivity of the surface may vary on the same airframe from very shiny in some areas to very dull in others. Alloys used on different panels may be distinctly different shades.
